Honda BeAT: a dependable ride amid skyrocketing prices

Honda BeAT Street

Honda Philippines Inc. (HPI) has expressed its firm confidence on its BeAT scooter offering, saying that it is very cost-efficient.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What powers the Honda BeAT?

    The Honda BeAT has a four-stroke, single-overhead cam, air-cooled engine.
  • What are retail prices of the Honda BeAT?

    The pricing of the Honda BeAT starts at P69,900-price tag for the Fashion Sport (STD) and Street options, up to P72,900 for the Premium (ISS/CBS) variation.
  • In a statement, the leading motorcycle manufacturer in the country said that many should take a look at the aforementioned model — especially those who want to cut down spending on gas (now that oil prices are still high).

    “As we come out of the pandemic and slowly go back to normal routines, the road to recovery is now everyone’s major objective. While Filipinos are known for their resilient spirit, the reality of inflation hits hard and in times like this, our priorities will depend on how far our paychecks will go,” HPI said.

    Below are the notable features of the Honda BeAT.

    Fuel efficiency

    One of the core strengths of the Honda BeAT is its capability to sip very little fuel while covering more roads. The scooter can do as much 63.7 kilometers per liter (kpl) consumption for the Premium variant and 58 kpl for the Standard trim.

    As the numbers suggested, it is very economical, thanks to its Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) supply system that features an electronic control technology that guarantees optimal supply of fuel and air. It also has an idling stop system (ISS) that automatically switches off the engine after three seconds of being stationary — further reducing consumption.

    Athletic appearance, lightweight

    The Honda BeAT’s design is very appealing. Its eye-catching headlight and winker design and sharp tail light style complements the stripes that dishes out a certain urban charm.

    The scooter only weighs 93 kilograms and a seat height of 740 millimeters, making it easy to maneuver around the snarling traffic of the city.

    Tech-loaded

    While it may be small in size, the Honda BeAT does not come short when it comes to safety and convenience. The 1,856mm scooter is equipped with a key shutter or a combination of the magnetic safety ignition, seat eject button, enhanced smart power (eSP), combi brake system (CBS), and semi-digital meter panel with eco indicator, among others.

    Enough oomph

    Powering the Honda BeAT is a four-stroke, single-overhead cam, air-cooled engine that generates a maximum of 8.7 horsepower and torque of 9.21Nm.

    Providing the stopping power are hydraulic ventilated disc brakes up front and mechanical leading trailing out back.

    Low price point

    The Honda BeAT is also tough to match in terms of pricing. The P69,900-price tag for the Fashion Sport (STD) and Street options, and the P72,900 for the Premium (ISS/CBS) variation is very reasonable.

    The BeAT — just like every Honda motorcycle in the country — is packaged with warranty provisions that, according to HPI, “customers can use as needed.” “Honda maintains that care, trust, and openness to customers are timeless principles that the group adheres to,” the statement added.
